Garage Workshop Build Out – The Tools You Will Need

One of my viewers, Jack Tyler, asked: "If you were starting from scratch with an empty garage… and work benches, storage racks and other house projects in front of you – which would you buy first? Table Saw or Miter Saw?" Also, one of my neighbors, Doc, ask me some similar questions about setting up his garage workshop. So, I am going to respond to both Jack and Doc by showing you all the tools you will need to build your garage workshop from scratch.
